Seaside Gin

Edinburgh Gin

Inspired by the East Coast shoreline near Edinburgh, Seaside evokes a day at the beach.

Edinburgh Gin has partnered with Heriot-Watt University, the UK’s only accredited distilling university. This partnership offers students a platform to learn the practical side of distilling.

Head distiller, Dave Wilkinson worked with the students to create this unique Seaside Gin which feature foraged botanicals including scurvy grass, ground ivy and bladderwrack seaweed. These are complemented with aromatic spice notes from grains of paradise, coriander and cardamom.

Boasting a collection of native Scottish botanicals foraged from the coastline, Seaside Gin is defined by juniper, soft minerality and sweet notes. This is the first of our collaborations through our partnership with Heriot-Watt University’s Brewing and Distilling MSc course.

Seaside Gin is a delicately balanced gin, featuring foraged botanicals including scurvy grass, ground ivy and bladderwrack. These are complemented with aromatic spice notes from grains of paradise, coriander and cardamom.

    Seaside is a limited edition gin from Edinburgh Gin Distillery. It is flavored with foraged botanicals from the seaside, including scurvy grass, ground ivy and bladderwrack, along with coriander and cardamom. It is a very earthy gin with great salinity. Coriander and cardamom come through on a bed of salt. This is a rich, complex gin, one that can be sipped straight, or used to provide surprising depth to an Aviation cocktail. Highly Recommended.

    Produced in the heart of Edinburgh, this 86-proof expression features botanicals forged from and inspired by the Scottish coastline. Ground ivy, scurvy grass and bladderwrack are some of the local finds, in addition to coriander, juniper berries, citrus and cardamom. It's a saline-driven, sweet oyster shell minerality that comes forth. The texture is round with notes of white pepper and salt water taffy.
